I have a total of four computers, three of which are basically just for use of the kids, or guests. I've been playing around for some months now with Linux Mint, and I'd like to set up my primary computer as a dual boot system. While I can find a lot of info on doing this out on the web, I still prefer to get my advice and step-by-step instructions from the people here, because I've never once been let down here.
So, the questions:
I use Adobe Dreamweaver, Premiere Pro, and Photoshop extensively. Though I prefer to write HTML in Notepad++ I still find Dreamweaver to be useful. This is the main reason that I want to run a dual boot system - I prefer to stay with my (bought and dearly paid for) Adobe products for the tasks I use them for. I assume, unless something has changed, that Adobe products are still not supported in Linux?
My system drive is a 1TB drive, of which at this point, even with all of the software that I use, still has approximately 930GB of free space. Is it best to put both Windows and Mint on the same drive? Or should I install Mint on a different drive - I have several available.
Finally, if anyone can lay out a sort of step-by-step tutorial for me on setting up a dual boot system, I would be quite grateful. I'm comfortable with Mint now, and I'm ready to start making the break away from Windows and Microsucks. As much as I can, anyway - there are still some things I'll need Win 7 for, but I'm ready to reduce my dependence on it now.
Any help and advice will be appreciated, as well as any considerations that I may not of thought of.
